The Gift Shop and Visitor’s Center are open from 10:00 – 5:00 seven days a week (excluding University holidays).


Memorial Stadium

There are multiple tiger statues there for pictures for yourself or children. Also you can see “Howard’s Rock” that is from Death Valley, given to Coach Frank Howard years ago and which is mounted at the football east entrance to the hill that Clemson’s football team runs down for “the most exciting 30 seconds in college football”, coined by TV Sportscaster Brent Mussberger in the 1970s. Across from that entrance is a small park with a number of tiger statues. Memorial Stadium is Death Valley, home of Frank Howard Field, the football field’s name, where The Tigers Roam! Worth a trip!

Best College Stadium

The Tiger’s baseball stadium is top notch. Grounds are always in great shape. Stadium and facilities are always clean. There is an area on the third base side where kids play in the grass. Fun to watch. Parking is ample and plenty of space for tailgating. There is hardly a bad seat in the stadium. Having said that, seats on the third base line can be pretty toasty on hot summer days.


Fort Hill Plantation
